Online Retailer CKB Ltd Celebrates Living Wage Commitment


The Living Wage Foundation is pleased to announce that CKB Ltd,, has accredited as a Living Wage employer.

Their Living Wage commitment will see everyone working at CKB Ltd, regardless of whether they are direct employees or third-party contracted staff; receive a minimum hourly wage of £8.45 in the UK. This rate is significantly higher than the statutory minimum for over 25s of £7.50 per hour introduced in April 2017.

The real Living Wage is an hourly rate set independently and updated annually. The Living Wage is calculated according to the real costs of living.

Colin Betteridge, Director, CKB Ltd, said:

We have been operating by the Living Wage Foundation’s principles for some time as they make sound business sense. As we gear up for the busy Christmas period, we are pleased to offer our fixed term contract staff the Living Wage. We are delighted to have now been officially recognised via our formal accreditation as a small business, which follows the Foundation’s guidelines.”

Employers choose to pay the real Living Wage on a voluntary basis. The Living Wage enjoys cross-party political support.

Katherine Chapman, Director, Living Wage Foundation said:

“We welcome CKB Ltd to the Living Wage movement as an accredited employer. Responsible businesses across the UK are voluntarily signing up to pay the real Living Wage now. The real Living Wage rate is annually calculated to reflect the real costs of living.

“We are a movement of over 3,500 UK employers who together want to go further than the government minimum to make sure all their staff earn enough to live on. We have lots of small businesses as well as big household names like; IKEA, Aviva, Chelsea and Everton Football Clubs and many more.

“These businesses recognise that the Living Wage accreditation is the mark of a responsible employer and they, like CKB Ltd, join us because they too believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay.”
